“I’m really excited about the challenge of the Mexican 1000. I’ve been preparing for this race for months now and I’m feeling ready to go. This is a rally style race where I’ll have to navigate entirely without GPS using a roadbook, odometer and compass. Riders will not know the day’s route until the morning of each stage. This adds an extra element of challenge to the already challenging conditions Baja presents to any rider. I’m looking forward to having a safe and really fun race.” -James
Best of Luck James!
